A simple and secure way for parents and guardians to pay for all school purchases, including school dinners, trips, events, tickets and school shop.
iPayimpact offers peace of mind to school staff, parents and pupils by removing the need for pupils to bring cash and cheques into schools entirely, whether that be for meals, trips, clubs or otherwise.
iPayimpact gives parents and guardians a transparent view of overall school payments via their online account. The real-time view shows parents their full transaction history and live balance, eliminating any confusion over payments.
Email alerts and notifications inform parents that their balance is low and makes them aware of any recurring payments that are due, allowing time for updating their accounts and ultimately saving schools valuable time in chasing overdue payments or debts.
